Greetings Wizards!

This space is being provided to assist you along the way as you navigate your wizard training! Have fun and try not not yourself, or each other!pixiedust: ;)

TIP: Don't get carried away! I have too many quests in my book right now. I went exploring and took on a bunch. It can get overwhelming. So many minions, rotting fodders etc... to defeat, so little time! Take it slow & easy! LOL!

HELP!: I need to find Dorothy Gale's friends, in their houses, on Unicorn Way. There is only 1 house with the blue light on but I can enter it. I did report it as a bug. Has anyone else had this problem?:confused3

I had 10 open quests in my book last night. Went through and knocked it down to 4. Good thing about the game is most quests have 1 task at a time. After that is done you have to ask for the next task. In conjunction with this tip I would suggest finishing an area before moving on to the next.

Stuck at that same point.

I also am having problems finding ANY of the books of knowledge in the quest given to you by the librarian.

1) Yeah, I have 13 right now and they are all over the place, so I need to clean it up!!

2) I found one in Lady Blackhope's house on Unicorn Way. To the right, after you walk n the door.

Yikes!!! I hope you found yourself!!

Have you found any of them? Do you know what they look like? I found the first one by accident, so I knew what to look for. Hint: Look on all the grassy areas in the places they they should be. Run behind tents, houses, trees etc.. They are tiny men, wearing red jackets or vests.

Will have to go back and check it out, since that is the only boss battle I have won so far. EDIT: Got it.

By tiny she means waist height. They also do not have a name over them. Just get close enough to them and a task complete message comes up. The easiest to find is just behind the golum tower.

Just update the Wizard title thread once you choose a title for your in-game character. Mine is Robert IceCaster of the School of Ice.

I don't know how much I'll be playing PotCO, now I got involved with Wizard101. I have computer problems with both games and still trying to get those straightened out.

Besides not being able to get to Dorothy's Friends on Unicorn Way (this is a known bug by the Wizard's team), I have now run into another problem that is keeping me from finishing Cyclops Lane. I, with the help of another player, beat General Akilles (the boss) and I now have to find the children he had captive. When I beat him I got the book of knowledge and another room seemed to open up, but there was nothing in that room that seemed to lead to the children. I know I probably will have to fight him again, but if anyone has got past this point could you please give me a hint on at least where to go to further this quest.

I'm still working on beating Akilles. I decided to take things area by area, to get some quests completed, if possible. LOL! I finally beat Eyus Maximus with my Troll Minion's help, but I'm having trouble with Akilles.

If we could find a time to meet up, maybe you could help me and we could unravel this mystery together!:thumbsup2

Having just started, I'm still finding my way. How do you get training points so that you can start acquiring magic outside of your specialty? I did the Lost Souls quest and while it gave me a little gold and a special card and raised me to level 2, I didn't get any training points. Are these quest based or come at alternate levels?

Thanks.

I got tired of waiting for them to reply to my e-mail, so I just started over.

I was not too far into the game so no big deal.

My big problem now is finding my friends again and getting them back on my friend list.

Not sure what happened to my character, but I was able to use the same title when I started over so I am still: Rowen DragonFlame.

I am not sure, but do know they come slowly. I am a level 9, have beat the bosses in Golem Tower / Unicorn Way / Cyclops Lane, and have only got 1 training point. However you will get some persistent spells from completing quests and some treasure cards (1 time spells) also.

Just wanted to let everyone know the Dorothy Friend's quest on Unicorn Way is fixed now. You can enter the house with light on that you couldn't before. Talk to Mr. Toto and then return to Dorothy to complete the quest. You will get gold, experience, and Ruby Slippers from completing the quest.

Got it! Yay! I can't believe I'm down to 2 quests in my book right now! One of them I might need help with. If anyone is on the "Grubb" quest, let me know.

I seem to be done with Wizard City, for the most part. All the streets etc.. Now, I'm deciding what school to use my training points in. Hmmm...:)

I tried it once with 1 other person but the first battle, I kept getting the damage, and my heal card wouldn't come up.:(

Can someone tell me the point to the schools? I have not been to class yet. Also, the dorms. What is their purpose?
Thanks!

BobRichmond
06-19-2008, 12:29 AM
...Can someone tell me the point to the schools?...
...Also, the dorms. What is their purpose?...
Each school has different spells that you can get free as you progress. That said the different schools spells all seem to do about the same damage. However what really makes a difference is the enemy you are against and the type of spells they have. If the enemy is the same type of magic user as you they probably have a block shield against your magic. However if they use different magic most likely they will not be able to block yours. That being said when you get to the point that you want to gang up on an unknown enemy it might be best to have members of different schools with you.

The dorms have a single purpose and that is to bank your extra items. You can only carry so many of each type of item (I think it is 8 or 10). Also there are items you will get that only other schools can equipt, so no sense in carrying them. Hopefully at some point (or maybe even now unbeknowst to me:confused3 ) we will be able to give or trade away items we don't need. We can sell the unneeded items now, but you do not get much for them.

I won't tell you directly, yet. Just be sure to run around ALL the grassy areas: behind houses, tents, trees etc... You'll find him.

HinT: Everyplace, in that area, that you don't have to take a tunnel to is considered part of the Commons.

As usual stupidest question in the world is here.

I saw a bunch of dis folk tonight - and I made friends with Toy and with a nice person named Morgan (who would that be??)

But I can't Speak!! I only have this largish menu of preset statements...

I appreciate some guidance on this.

Also I have three special cards one time cards - how do I get them to come up when I am in battle? I bought one and earned two others.

The end of my questions for now

You need to click the book, then your deck of cards. At the top, there are symbols for the different schools and what looks like gold cards (all the way on the right). Click the gold cards and it will shoe your 1 time use "treasure cards". Click on them to add them to your deck.

Thanks.

When you "Level up" (Meaning filling you exp.bar) you gain 1 training point and can go back to your school or another professor to get a new spell.
I suggest sticking with your schools spells for now, everytime you lvl you get a stronger spell from them. If you went to one of the other schools you would get a lvl 1 spell that would not do much damage it would be like starting over everytime you go a training point and you will need the stronger spells once you get into the dark caves and their bosses. Lvl 3 Elites.

Just to add....the spells from your school do not cost any points. It seems that it's best to choose a secondary school to use your points in. If you use them at a bunch of different schools, you will end up with a lot weak spells. if you use them all in one school, you will build up just like you do in your own.

Oh, I just wanted to add that if you get a good score on the minigames (I know that it's around 5000 in Hot Shots, which by the way is my favorite minigame in the whole wide world) you get four prizes:

1. Mana

2. Gold

3. A robe (armor) or treasure card

4. A treasure card

It's in that order. As for treasure cards, I've gotten anything from a Keen Eyes (0 pip buff) card to a Midnighter (4 pip attack) card.

Also, what is a grubb?
Hope to see others in the game soon


1) Not a moron!;)

2) If you took the quiz at the beginning, it told you what school you were suited for. You had option to take it or select one on your own. And, yes your DH can select a school or take the one the quiz recommends.

If you don't remember, let us know your rank; what it says in parenthese under your name on the home screen, and we might be able to tell.

3) Grubb is a who. You'll find out as the game progresses. Nothing to worry about now.:)

I honestly don't remember but, seriously, if yu start at the entrance and just run the perimeter of the area, and search all of the grassy parts, you will find him. Just be sur you are looking behind buildings, tents and trees.

Yesterday I sent them an email (via the "Support" tab on the home page) and received this response this morning.

We understand your eagerness to be enrolled in Ravenwood & we're quite excited to have you join as well. Please understand, however, this is a Free Beta Test to ensure all our systems are in place for open enrollment to all potential wizards world wide. As such, we are keeping a strict control on the timing of entries at this point and testing all aspects of the school and processes.

Rest assured you are not forgotten nor being cast aside. Your participation in the near term is vital and we will be contacting you to let you know when another class is opened!

Thank you!

I finally figured this one out. ~woot!~

The treasure cards get loaded into your deck by clicking the gold card from the top row (where it has all the different symbols).

Then, during battle, right click on a card to place it back into the deck. Once you do that, the "Draw" button displays. Click the Draw button and then, one of your treasure cards display.

You can do that all in one turn.

The count down is how long you have to pick a card and enemy; or do the discard/draw/pick new card before your turn ends.

It's at the very end of Unicorn Way. Yes, in a large house.

Okay, after I read this I looked and found it. I have no idea how I could have not even looked in this place. Thank you very much.

1) Not a moron!;)

2) If you took the quiz at the beginning, it told you what school you were suited for. You had option to take it or select one on your own. And, yes your DH can select a school or take the one the quiz recommends.

If you don't remember, let us know your rank; what it says in parenthese under your name on the home screen, and we might be able to tell.

3) Grubb is a who. You'll find out as the game progresses. Nothing to worry about now.:)

A Grubb is a who...sounds interesting lol



I'm in the same boat...

Yesterday I sent them an email (via the "Support" tab on the home page) and received this response this morning.

We understand your eagerness to be enrolled in Ravenwood & we're quite excited to have you join as well. Please understand, however, this is a Free Beta Test to ensure all our systems are in place for open enrollment to all potential wizards world wide. As such, we are keeping a strict control on the timing of entries at this point and testing all aspects of the school and processes.

Rest assured you are not forgotten nor being cast aside. Your participation in the near term is vital and we will be contacting you to let you know when another class is opened!

Thank you!

Mr. Lincoln
Ravenwood School of Magical Arts

I wanna play!! :(

But really nice to get such a quick response!! ::yes::

Great customer service unlike some other games I've been playing.

I finally figured this one out. ~woot!~

The treasure cards get loaded into your deck by clicking the gold card from the top row (where it has all the different symbols).

Then, during battle, right click on a card to place it back into the deck. Once you do that, the "Draw" button displays. Click the Draw button and then, one of your treasure cards display.

You can do that all in one turn.

The count down is how long you have to pick a card and enemy; or do the discard/draw/pick new card before your turn ends.

This is very helpful. I was wondering the same thing. I didn't know what I was doing wrong.

If you're Level 8, you should already have a Training Point. The first is received at Level 3; the second at Level 10; then every 5 Levels after that. There are also one or two quests that award them.

You spend the Training Point with a Professor from a different School than yours. Just go in to talk to them and select "Train" from the menu. You'll see the spells they have to offer BUT you must take them in order, starting with the first one. After spending the Training Point, the cards for that spell will be able to be added to your deck.

You can spread the Training Points around to the different Schools, but then you'd end up with a bunch of Level 1 & 2 spells in your deck. I think most people invest them in a single other School -- sorta like having a Major (in your case, Myth) and a Minor (in whatever) in school.

Hmmm, odd I don't remember seeing any 'training' points in my stuff, I'll have to go look again. I have received two cards or such from my professor, but even then I don't remember seeing points in my stock.
Another quest to add to my book then!:rotfl2:


Edited to add: Well I went in briefly this morning to look and see and have no experience points or pips either for me yet. Though I show as being level 8.
I know I still have that golem tower quest yet to finish, is that the one with finding the books by chance? Because someone else was telling me about the books and even though I've been in a few places where they were I couldn't access them when I beat that person. Odd...or do I just need to be out there beating more bad guys more and more? lol

It seems I have finished most everything on Wizard City, except for Grubb (and any unknown quests beyond that).

I tried both Grubb and Krock and will continue on in Krock, since it seems easier.

I should do some more exploring on Krock, but have some questions in the mean time. Is there anything on Krock:
- Like the shopping district and if so are the items different?
- Where you can "Bank" items?
- Where you can learn spells (home or other schools)?

The easiest way to see if you have training points (and a lot of other useful information) is to type "C", which will bring up your character screen. You also can see training points when you train in a non-home school.
...still have that golem tower quest yet to finish, is that the one with finding the books by chance?...
Completely different quest. I am pretty sure the book quest starts by a visit to Ambrose, who tells you to visit a person in the library. That person will tell you to visit all the school professors, then all the school trees, then I think the librarian for the book quest. I would suggest getting that quest now, as to get some of the books you have to fight the boss even if you have already beaten him once.

There is a bazaar in the Oasis that is like the Shopping District in Wizard City. I haven't checked their inventory yet to see if anything is different, however. There is also a minigame station in the Oasis, so you don't have to go back to the Fairegrounds to refill your mana flasks.

Your Bank is still in your dorm room. You also go back to Ravenwood to learn new spells. (It's not too time-consuming. The Home button on the map will take you to the Oasis, and it's only a few screens away from there.)

I've just started on Krokotopia. It's certainly more challenging than Wizard City, as all the duels I've had so far involve fighting 2 creatures. (It also doesn't help that I ran into a bug that prevented me from getting my Staff from the Headmaster. I hope they fix that soon.)

As for Sunken City/Grubb: That's going to require some major teamwork, I think. If the first thing you encounter is an unavoidable battle with 3 tough ghosties, I shudder to think what else lies beyond.

If Ambrose doesn't have it for you try revisiting the library and see if either of the NPCs there do.

When you finish each area it will send you to notify Ambrose and this is a good time to check if he has any other quests for you.

It took me 4 tries to finish the complete Golem Tower. A rather tough quest that is slightly easier (only slightly and that based on luck of the cards) after you get the healing cards from the Sereph in Unicorn Way.

IIRC, doesn't the "Library Dues" quest for the Books of Magic begin with one of the guards (either on Unicorn Way or in Olde Towne) asking you to take a book he found back to the library? Then the student wiz there asks you to help research his article by interviewing the Professors & Trees. This track eventually leads you to ask the Librarian for the Books.

Now...has anyone beaten that dratted golum thing on the first try? That quest hates me! rofl Won't let me use my troll, my pixie card, etc...
I can't tell you how many times I was defeated in that tower! I finally put it off until I was Level 10 and had a few more spells in my arsenal. Since it's not a main story quest, putting it off didn't hold me back from accessing the other areas while I grew stronger.

In the Shopping District there is a store with a paint brush on the sign. You can change your wardrobe colors there and the price is not too bad. However some pieces of clothes only have a limited color pallet for base and trim colors. This is a good way to always have the most powerful clothes and keep them matching somewhat.

On a related note: If you change your clothes based on their powers, which powers do you try to enhance? So far I have gone with clothes that raise my maximum life and mana. Thinking about clothes that raise the attack and defense powers for my school's spells or just my overall attack and defense.

TIP: Many items you will win multiples of, which you know. I had 3 pairs of "Quartermaster's Boots" and they were all different colors. So before you spend money on dyeing, check the individual item colors. But, for the record, my current outfit is like technicolor gone bad! LOL!! I realized I change outfits too often to mess with the color.

I also wear whatever maxes my health and mana. The only time I change is if I am in an area where the enemies use predominantly one kind of magic. I keep the most powerful garments I have found, for each power, in my backpack. I will only use them if they don't take too much away from my health. It really does work.

I finally beat Golem Tower! :worship: :banana: It took me getting almost to level 12 (I grew to level 12 right in between the 3rd and 4th floors) and changing my wand. I switched to the wand that shot the blue flames (I'm at work and cannot remember the name of the wand) for 0 manna. The blue flames did a decent job on the guys I was fighting and saved my points so that I could then finish them off with the fire bird spell.

All I have left are the tower bosses in Tritan, Firecat, and Cyclops (Akilles); the magic books; and the Colossus Smith. When does Colossus get unlocked? I'm guessing new quests appear once the bosses are defeated?

Thanks!

:scared1:

There is a bug when you reach the 4th floor of the house right before you go to battle Grubb where there is a Field Guard and 2 Screamers. The Field Guard will not allow you to magic it. At no time during the match could we magic it, finally after killing the 2 screamers and it didn't allow us to hit it with magic during a couple rounds we just fleed. Team work does help a lot. That is my only Wizard City quest left (Level 21 Pyromancer now) - would love to finish it and get it off my book. Hope the bug is fixed soon.

To answer the question about being a level 8 and not getting level 8 cards in the other houses. You go up a 'school' level with each training point you get and use in a house. For example I am level 21 - meaning I am level 21 within my Pyromancer house, but in the school of Life which I have used my skill points I am only level 8. Hope that makes sense.

Don't pay attention to the levels in other schools just your main focus. whenever you get a training point you go to the school that you want you spell in and just look at the spell and if you have the point look on the side it will be red and click that then you have your spell

This is true!! As a general tip, if not already using it...Go to the options screen and change the "2D Combat Display" to ON. In all battles, you will be able to see how many health points you and the enemy have left and what spells your friends are casting. AND, you will be able target "non-targetable" enemies by clicking their health point banner.

ETA: What are the different Realms? I noticed I no longer have Ambrose highlighted in blue. Now that one is back to normal text color and the 2nd Realm (Myth teacher) is highlighted in blue.

Where are you seeing these? I don't see it?:confused3
Never mind: Just found it!!

I'm supposed to meet up with somebody tonight (9:00 EDT, 6:00 PDT) to try and take on Sunken City. I think we could still use another body (or two) so if you're interested, let me know.


I can probably join you. Where are you meeting?



Now when do we get through the hidden door behind the water fall in the commons? Is that supposed to take us to a new realm?;)

I need to take on Sunken City too...I can be on at 9pm EST... if you need an extra, post here and I'll meet up with you.
Sure - give me your title. Shelby Nightwalker is me :P Tell me where to meet you. My partner and I would love to help you out. His title is William Nightstrider. We are both level 21 Pyromancers.
I have no idea how many (or few) there are going to be. If we have too many for one group, I'm sure we can figure something out. Edited to add: I was posting at the same time, Diva and OctoPie. The more the merrier, I say!

Time: 9:00 Eastern/6:00 Pacific
Location: outside Sunken City in Nightside
Realm: Ambrose, Area.2

My wizard is Kenneth Dragonheart, Level 16 Pyromancer.
FYI, the wizard arranging the meet is Keelan Ironwalker, Level 18 Conjurer.

Hope to see you there! :wizard:


Stating the obvious, but you did check your bank in your room right - jic it was stuck there on accident?
Believe me, I've checked (and checked, and checked again!) From posts on the Wizard101 message boards, there are quite a few of us having problems with various staffs. Either they don't show up at all -- or they can't be equipped if they do!

Just a little tip. To get out of Krokotopia and move on to the next
world you are going to have to team up with a friend. Otherwise you will be taking on
4 baddies by yourself. At first I didn't care about friends, now
I pick up as many as I can get. (Thanks, Liam for getting me through
the last qwest).

Actually this was all part of the plan of the KingsIsle designers. I mean
this IS a MMO. What's the point of multiple players if you are not at
an advantage by teaming up.

I'm on to World 3. And believe me you need friends there, it seems as ANY
amount of dueling takes friends, or at least one of the spells which attack
multiple monsters with one thrust.

p.s. Once you get to World 3, you will need to do a lot of shuttling
back to Wizard City and Krokotopia (so you won't get homesick for
your old battlegrounds <grin>)

Good luck to all. If you see me in there, please ask me to be your friend!

I would like to thank Kenneth ThunderCloud, whoever you are, for helping me out in the game last night. It was fun.

I finally got past the first golem quest and was very upset that they wanted to send me back in there to battle again and go to the next floor. It was hard enough getting to the first one. I will try to tackle that once I get more experience, and better spells.

I made it to level 11. I don't know how you all move up so fast. I guess I should concentrate on cleaning up the quests in wizard city before following friends to other lands.

It has been pointed out that when we were accepted for beta we all agreed to not disclose the game mechanics. You can read it on the official forums the whole spiel as for right now, I removed the picture I posted preivously and I would ask you all on a voluntary basis to do the same. Going forward please do not post any pictures from the game and I will be deleting them without notice if they are posted.

For right now feel free to ask for help, but try to keep the game mechanics off discussion as I believe its the game companies intention to keep that as a secret at this point still. Remember it is not a public beta and we were lucky to be invited.

That would be me. :wave2:

ThunderCloud is my second wizard (Storm/Death), whereas DragonHeart was my first (Fire/Life). I wanted to try out a different build and am so far having a great time playing around with their abilities. Maybe it's because I have more experience with the game, but it seems that ThunderCloud is more powerful than DragonHeart was at the same level. He certainly has gotten some cooler clothes. :cool2:

Has anyone completed the keeper of the fang quest? We defeated the 3 girls (Defender, Guardian and Protector). I turned the braziers in the Defender's room to the same color, Alias did the other 2 rooms (oblisks). Only his locks broke, mine did not.
Now the braziers do not have the x anymore and we cannot change them The oblisks are gone in the other 2 chambers.

...I don't see any other players anymore. I have been by myself the past two nights.
It depends on what realm and area the game decides to put you in. I was in Ambrose area 1 last night and did not see another person in about 30 minutes. Went to area 2 and there were people everywhere.

BobRichmond
06-25-2008, 12:51 AM
...What are the different Realms?...
Remember the different "directions" that each public area in VMK had. Realms/area are sort of like that, but the whole game is in a realm/area. So if you start in Ambrose area 1 every time you go to a different part of the game world you will still be in Ambrose area 1. Doing it this way means that if you can get into a realm/area you should be able to get into every part of the game world with minimum wait (mostly just to load the graphics for that area).

BobRichmond
06-25-2008, 01:25 AM
...The mechanics of the game fly right over my head...
There are a couple different ways to get quests to do.

Early in the game a circled picture of a NPC will pop up on the right side of the lower screen. These will usually tell you to come see them and they will have a quest for you.

You also run into NPCs with a "!" over their name. This means they have quest(s) for you to do. A gold "?" over their name means you have already accepted a quest and talking to them is the next step for you to do. If you see a silver "?" over their name it means you have accepted a quest from them already and have not completed it. The part that is confusing here is that a lot of times you will talk to a gold "?" NPC and the quest will end, but he will then change to the "!" and have a different quest or task for you to do.

Click on the book in the lower right corner of your screen (what is that called anyway - journal?). The third tab from the bottom on the right in the journal has a picture of 2 silver balls - this is the realms tab. Click on it and you will see the realm and area you are presently in highlighted in blue. To change realms or areas click on which one you would like to go to and then click on the "Go To Realm" / "Go To Area" button on the bottom. At the present there are usually 4 or 5 realms showing as available, but many times only 1 area.

I have some questions and comment (I will send them the comment, I think)

1. How can you tell by looking at your cards if they are "one time use" only?

2. Is there any way to "review" instructions like from duelmaster Diego, etc - where they give you detailed advice on card interactions? When I put up a shield it revolves around me but if I put up an offensive card it rotates around the enemy - these look identical but do opposite things...

3. Can you get magic from other schoools with your skill points if NOT in order, for example, I would like the unicorn healer card but it is fairly high level and my "minor" is in the ice school.

Thanks for the advice.

Not that I know of. Terrible help files at this point. Newbies should be
cautioned to pay attention to the tutorials and jot down a few notes.

3. Can you get magic from other schoools with your skill points if NOT in order, for example, I would like the unicorn healer card but it is fairly high level and my "minor" is in the ice school.

You can train spells from some other school, but you have to pick
from the bottom of that school's list. For example even though you are a level 8, from another school's, you will have to first train on their level 1 spell. For that reason, you should stick to your school and minor in one school only.

I like that... When you go to Waizard School (which we all are doing) you need to pick a Major and a Minor. (but they never tell you that).

Hope that helps.

For the books and the Smiths, once you find them they leave your quest inventory. So, your quests only show the ones you still need to find.

One thing that is cool/annoying depending on how you look at it is some quests are 'timed'. Similar to the Grubb quest if you die you must start over, there are some quests in Kroktopia which if you start and do not complete - log out, go back to Wizard City, or do not complete in the amount of time the quest believes you should be done it - you have to start all over again.

Good thing is you get the XP again, bad thing is, you have to do them over again.

So be mindful of that when you get over into the new land.

I did not know that! Thanks!

So, chatting... is there a way to talk without the "canned" chat? Someone from here, I assume, asked me if I was from The Board and I thought he meant Dis Board... told me to ask if I had any questions... but how? I am so lost right now. :rotfl2:

can someone PM me directions on how to find the gobbler king? i defeated the gobbler prince and it says I need to talk to the gobbler king. Please don't tell me that I had to stay there because i left. (I suspect I needed to stay there). :rolleyes1 I tried to go back in and look for him but I immediately got pulled into another battle with the prince.

One thing that is cool/annoying depending on how you look at it is some quests are 'timed'. Similar to the Grubb quest if you die you must start over, there are some quests in Kroktopia which if you start and do not complete - log out, go back to Wizard City, or do not complete in the amount of time the quest believes you should be done it - you have to start all over again.

Good thing is you get the XP again, bad thing is, you have to do them over again.

So be mindful of that when you get over into the new land.

Technically, they aren't timed. It's just that you have to complete the entire series of tasks in one shot. You can't leave, be defeated, etc... without having to start over. Frustrating! :worried:

Ok. :) Luckily killing gets easier as you grow in strength within your house and your second study. Glad I didn't put talent points all over and just stuck with a single house besides my main. Now it is really easy to kill stuff off - even doing the Grubb thing at Level 24 is a lot easier than when we initially tried at level 19 or so.

Doing the last section right now in the Tomb of Storms. Wonder what is in store next for my little avatar....:wizard:

I am so far behind everybody else I guess. Anyway, on Cyclops Lane I see boxes on the sidewalks. I know from seeing the trunks or chest that I get gold from them. I have never been able to do anything with the boxes, but today I did see someone go up to the box and than it disappeared. What might he have done? Also it is the first time I have seen someone else in about 4 or 5 days which makes me thing everybody else has moved on to different areas.

I don't know if they confer any type of power or so, but you can change them as you get them. I also found further back in the numbering where it is keeping count of how many of some types of ghouls you are killing such as 50/1000 or some such. Doesn't look quite as impressive as a badge mind you,:lmao: but it is there. I do wonder if it does confer some sort of overall 'prestige' or points later if you meet the specified goal.

There's a Wizard 101 forum that works? Every time I have accessed it.
It seems to have been locked and accessible to the KingsIsle developers only. I played the Alpha and it was locked even then.

I'll have to check it out. If they opened the forum that woud be great.


Just FYI and so everyone is ALERTED -

Your avatars will most likely (but not definitely) be DELETED when this game goes live - I mention this so there are not so many hurt feelings or confusion. There is a thread about this in the Wiz. 101 forums section.

I noticed it today when I was trying to figure out how to use my Sword card, which does not seem to EVERY work, in ANY situation. I am low level (12) and just about done with level one. Still need to finish off Olde Town bad guys and some mop up on Triton Ave.

Always good to see you guys in game!! Thanks!!

Nope, no power. And, if you watch all the yellow messages that appear after battle, you will sometimes see something like "Gobler Hunter badge found". That is when you get the counts like 10/50 of that enemy defeated, in your badges. When you kill all 50, 100 etc..., you get that badge.

It should be on the map. I don't remember specifically though. Just so you know. I was talking to a Fire school player about minions and he said it's practically useless because you need like 5 pips to call it.:worried:

Mine is great! Only takes 2. Buy my myth spells aren't as strong your fire spells, so I guess it balances out.

Just got an Email from Wizards...just a heads up to all...

Hello Wizards!

Thank you for all of the feedback and bug submissions! Because we have received so much great feedback from our players, we are now ready to incorporate that feedback into the game and make some significant improvements. We will be making those game changes next week. In order to make these changes, we must permanently delete all Wizard characters from the game. Your account is still active and you will immediately be able to create a new Wizard character.

We are aware that our players have spent a considerable amount of time playing our game. Therefore, once you return to Wizard101 and create a new wizard, you will have the option to level up to Krokotopia (our second world) by simply completing a short quest. And as an added bonus, there will be a pet vendor in Golem Court giving away free pets. The ability to quickly move to Kroktopia and get a free pet will only be available in game for a short period of time though! We are making this available as a way for you to return to a point in the game close to where you were, so that if you desire, you can quickly go to the beginning of Krokotopia rather than start from the beginning of the game. However, if you desire, you can experience the new quests and other game changes we have made by starting over from the beginning.

Please check the forums, website, or your email on Monday to find out exactly when the characters will be deleted next week and when you can re-enter the game and level up to Krokotopia quickly.

We sincerely apologize if this causes you any inconvenience, but hope that you understand that we are conducting a live Beta, and these changes are necessary to improve the game as a result of your feedback. Thank you for playing Wizard101 and your continued support and feedback!

Thank you,
Fred Howard
V.P. of Marketing
KingsIsle Entertainment

I'm going to need more info before I decide whether to start over again in Wizard City or in Krok.

For one, I'd like to know what level they intend to give the Krok-starters, as both of my wizards are there now (lvl 18 & 15). It's going to be difficult to invest much energy in playing them this weekend, knowing that any more progress they make will be wiped out in a couple of days.

I'm also wondering how much gold they'll give you if you start in Krok. All the upgrades there are frightfully expensive. (I was just about to buy a new wand in the Bazaar, after painstakingly amassing 1600 credits.)

I'm thinking I might start one in Krok and the other back at the beginning. I think it would be interesting to see what changes they've made in the Wizard City portion of the game. Plus, I like Wizard City much more than I do Krok so far. It was a lot more fun and nowhere near as frustrating! :headache:

Perhaps I'll create two characters... one to actually earn that dragon and the other to jump start and see what everybody's been talking about. :rotfl:

I *still* don't get how you get your cards to show up in battles :confused3 I click the "Draw" button and nothing happens... I'm still very confused.

Well...I am at the Krokotopia level just now, but I think I'd like to start all over again. I've a few friends who haven't been able to start yet, so I think it would be fun to start even up with them. Plus, I am interested to see any changes that were made to the first few levels. As for the free pet, my cute little dragon was relatively cheap. He only set me back about 450. :)

Actually, no I don't play many games at all. The only time I play is when I need to refill my mana. The better your score, the more gold you collect. You can collect some gold just by winning battles, though.

The only pet that gives you any benefit (that I'm aware of) is the Bloodbat. If he's your pet, you get a Bloodbat card added to your deck. 'Course, he also costs 4000 credits -- which is 5x what the Dragon costs!

Grrrrr.

On the other hand. I was a Myth/Storm. I think a Life/Death combo might be better.

I don't think you did anything wrong. I'd heard of that bug happening to others, so was very nervous when I went to create a second character myself. Fortunately, I didn't have any problems.

When you have more than one character does it give you some kind of menu to select what character you want to play with?
The character you last played is standing front and center. Your other characters are seated at the desks around the sides of the screen. In order to play them, you click on one to bring them to the front. Yet another very clever design from the folks at Wizard101.

Heh. Just wait until you're in the land underwater! Eeek! DaffyPluto and I were there this morning and had to fight FOUR banshees! They just entered at will...ugh.
Yes, it's rough when someone else enters an already begun battle, as you are left with more than you can handle, sometimes.

As for the treasure cards, I have no clue. They all seem to come up at random, and many times they are NOT lit, so they can't be used. I would love to know how to pull those up when they are badly needed. Many times I don't see one until all I need is a wand blast to finish them off, what's the point then of using a major spell?

OH! If anyone knows where the Fire Tower is, please tell me! I can't find that bird anywhere!

How to use treasure cards:
Hi!
When you are putting cards in your deck, go to the gold cards tab in the top right corner of your screen. Click on that and you can add the treasure cards you want to use.

To use them in battle: When it's time to select a spell, right-click a card you want to "discard". Then, click "draw". This will deal you a treasure card you have placed in your deck. Of course, you can only useit if you have enough pips.

Just remember that treasure cards are single use only. I think you can buy more of them in the library though.

My daughter and I just started playing this game, or I should say, we have both made avatars and she has been playing. I just haven't had time. Her school is Storm and she is a level 10. Mine is Life and she has gotten me to a level 6. Now that the game is being reset, does the school you choose really make a difference? When do you choose your minor? Does the pet make a difference? From what I have read in the other posts, the bat is the only one that helps you? I'm really more of a dragon person. :rotfl: I am thinking about jumping ahead with the one and then making a second to start from the beginning since I don't have a clue as to what to do. :confused3

You won't be able to continue. They are resetting the game this week sometime and all our characters will be gone. You *have* to start over! :) BUT, you can recreate devin shadowflame and take up their offer so you're not too far behind where you are now.

Today I am creating all the wizards they will allow! :rotfl: Each in a different school. Just curious if I would notice a difference in how they respond to the various quests. My "Balance School" character, Caleb CrowCaller seems to have a better spell casting success rate... but that could just be my imagination. :laughing:

I've been doing that, but you can only draw three times, I believe. Most times, I don't even get to my treasure cards. That's where I'm confused. When I need the bigger spells, I don't have any to use.

I've been doing that, but you can only draw three times, I believe. Most times, I don't even get to my treasure cards. That's where I'm confused. When I need the bigger spells, I don't have any to use.

Hmmm... so in my starter deck, I have three "regular" cards. I can put three of each in my starter deck. Do you put three of each in yours? Maybe only put two of each? Maybe (and I have no idea what I'm talking about here) that would leave more room for the treasure cards?

Nobody knows where the Fire Tower is?

Sorry. :(

In regard to the "jumping to Krok" when the game re-sets: I believe you can only take that optin if you are already at that point in the game. I know that people who are beyond that recieved another e-mail suggesting we may be able to skip farther ahead.

I am not certain when I got the quest, but I'm guessing in Firecat Alley. It's a picture of the phoenix...Fire Crow, I believe they call it. It only says to locate the Fire Crow in the Fire Tower. Nobody seems to know where that is and some never got that quest. :confused3

How to use treasure cards:
To use them in battle: When it's time to select a spell, right-click a card you want to "discard". Then, click "draw". This will deal you a treasure card you have placed in your deck. Of course, you can only useit if you have enough pips.

Just remember that treasure cards are single use only. I think you can buy more of them in the library though.
Two other points:
1. Remember that the card you discard will NOT be available to play later in that particular combat. Keep that in mind when you’re choosing which card, if any, to discard.
2. The Treasure Card that is drawn will be randomly selected from the ones you have loaded into the TC card slots. So if you’re wanting to use a particular one, that should be the only one loaded.

i have a character name devin shadowflame and he in ice and i just go to krokotopia :)
Now their is a offer to go straight to krokotopia should i just decline it and contine going since i am at the same spot
The option to go straight to Krok will apply to the wizards you make after the wipe.

I have 2 wizards who are currently in Krok; even so, I am waiting to see what else is included in their offer.
For example:
What level will you be if you choose to start in Krok? (I would not consider anything less than lvl 15.)
How much money will they give you? (Upgrades are expensive in Krok.)
What bonus clothes/accessories/Treasure Cards will you have? (This is a key point for me. The items you get along the way are part of your wizard’s strength and defenses. I don’t see how they can adequately compensate for their loss.)

I will make my mind up when we have more information, but at the moment, I am considering starting all over. That will allow me to build my wizard from scratch (again) and earn the cards, credits, clothes, etc., that I will eventually need.

My daughter and I just started playing this game, or I should say, we have both made avatars and she has been playing. I just haven't had time. Her school is Storm and she is a level 8. Mine is Life and she has gotten me to a level 6. Now that the game is being reset, does the school you choose really make a difference?
Although the vast majority of quests are the same, Schools make a difference in how you actually play the game. There are different spells, strengths, and weaknesses to every school. Your daughter’s school, Storm, has a much higher fizzle rate than yours; however, when her spells are successful, she can inflict a lot more damage than you can. Also, various enemies have different levels of resistance to different spells – so a wizard from one school could have an easier time against them than someone from another school. That’s why having a good secondary school (or “minor”) is important.

When do you choose your minor?
You can start on a “minor” as soon as you get your first Training Point at level 3. You’ll be able to spend it to learn the first spell in any school other than your own. (It makes no sense to save the training points, either, as you cannot jump ahead or skip spells. You must learn them in order, starting with the first.) You’ll receive another training point at level 10, then every 5 levels after that.

Does the pet make a difference? From what I have read in the other posts, the bat is the only one that helps you? I'm really more of a dragon person. :rotfl:
As I mentioned above, the only pet that makes a difference is the Bloodbat. Consider the others to be fashion accessories (at present).

I am thinking about jumping ahead with the one and then making a second to start from the beginning since I don't have a clue as to what to do. :confused3
If you don’t have a clue, then I strongly suggest you NOT jump ahead. Krokotopia is a much more difficult & challenging world than Wizard City.

My "Balance School" character, Caleb CrowCaller seems to have a better spell casting success rate... but that could just be my imagination. :laughing:
Not your imagination. Balance and Life have the best casting rate (as indicated by the 90% on the spell cards).

Nobody knows where the Fire Tower is?
It’s the building directly across from the Fire School & Bernie, the Fire Tree. You’ll see a fire insignia on the door.

Hmmm... so in my starter deck, I have three "regular" cards. I can put three of each in my starter deck. Do you put three of each in yours? Maybe only put two of each? Maybe (and I have no idea what I'm talking about here) that would leave more room for the treasure cards?
Read Diva’s guide above. The Treasure Cards do NOT go in the same slots as the regular cards in your deck. Instead, if you click the Treasure Card icon in your deck, you will see half a dozen empty slots where they can be loaded.

Why is it a few of my cards when I start the fight are greyed out and I cant use them, but then in a couple of rounds they are active?

You can only use them if you have enough magic pips! Have you been through the battle training with "Diego", just inside the entrance to Unicorn Way? It will explain everything. But, the pips are the glowing blobs of fire, at your feet, during battle. The number in the top left corner of each card tells you how many pips it takes to cast that spell. So, if you want to have enough pips for a stronger spell, cast "0" pip spells or pass, until you have enough for the stronger spell.

Sometimes you will earn "power pips". They glow yellow instead of white and they count as 2.

Why is it a few of my cards when I start the fight are greyed out and I cant use them, but then in a couple of rounds they are active?
Because you don't have enough pips to power those spells.

Pips are the glowing white balls at your feet in the combat circle. (There are also Power Pips which are yellow, but I'll save that discussion for another day...) You earn one pip for each round of combat, and if it is not used, it carries over to subsequent rounds.

The cost in pips for each spell is located on the top left corner of the card. Your basic Wand spell, for example, costs 0 pips, as do most Shields & Traps. Firecat/Imp/Dark Sprite/Thunder Snake/etc. costs 1 pip. Fire Elf/Leprechaun/Ghoul/Lightning Bats/etc. costs 2, and so on.

So, say for your first casting, you cast a zero-pip spell. The pip that you started with will be saved for the next round, when you will be getting another. Then in the second round, you will have 2 pips and can spend them both to try and cast a stronger spell. Say you try to cast Fire Elf then, and it fizzles. (Believe me, I know the feeling...) The 2 pips that it would have cost are still available next round -- along with a new, third pip.

The spell cards that are greyed out require more pips than you have available to spend. Those cards become active in later rounds because you have accumulated enough pips by then (through zero-pip spells, passing, and fizzles) to power them.

Edited to add:
Sometimes you will earn "power pips". They glow yellow instead of white and they count as 2.
I wasn’t going to get into Power Pips, but since Diva mentioned them, I’d just like to add that they count as 2 pips but only for spells in your major school. Otherwise, they count as one. So if you’re a Pyromancer, for example, a single Power Pip will enable you to cast a level 2 Fire Elf spell. You will not, however, be able to cast a level 2 spell (Leprechaun, Ghoul, Pixie) that belongs to any other school.

In regard to the "jumping to Krok" when the game re-sets: I believe you can only take that optin if you are already at that point in the game. I know that people who are beyond that recieved another e-mail suggesting we may be able to skip farther ahead.

Actually I only reached level 13 today and my letter mentioned about leveling up to the Krok level if I remember correctly. Whatever the letter that was posted here earlier, mine said the same thing.;)
So I would be leveling up in my case.


Edited to add: Here is what my letter said yesterday:

We are aware that our players have spent a considerable amount of time playing our game. Therefore, once you return to Wizard101 and create a new wizard, you will have the option to level up to Krokotopia (our second world) by simply completing a short quest. And as an added bonus, there will be a pet vendor in Golem Court giving away free pets. The ability to quickly move to Kroktopia and get a free pet will only be available in game for a short period of time though! We are making this available as a way for you to return to a point in the game close to where you were, so that if you desire, you can quickly go to the beginning of Krokotopia rather than start from the beginning of the game. However, if you desire, you can experience the new quests and other game changes we have made by starting over from the beginning.

So I would be leveling up after a small quest. Let's just hope it's small! rofl Wonder if they could make it just one bad guy....lol

Remember, you must have enough pips to launch the treasure card. For example, if all the gold cards in your deck are "4" and you only have 2 pips you can't launch them. It's tricky because if you have four pips you probably have some good weapons in your regular deck.

That's why I have started loading some "2" my gold deck. Usually pixies.


As for the treasure cards, I have no clue. They all seem to come up at random, and many times they are NOT lit, so they can't be used. I would love to know how to pull those up when they are badly needed. Many times I don't see one until all I need is a wand blast to finish them off, what's the point then of using a major spell?

Thanks!

As you advance in the game you can buy a bigger deck and carry more spells. But unless you sell your lower level decks they are still there often filled with spells. (In fact when you buy the deck it will say something like "you are limited to three copies.") Anybody know the advantage to carrying more than one deck?

Both my Fire Wizard and Storm Wizard received staffs from Headmaster Ambrose after completing Colossus Blvd. Neither one can be equipped for use. There are numerous posts about this bug over on the site's forums, so I'm sure it will be fixed in future update.

I was upset at first about receiving an award I couldn't use -- until I saw that neither staff gave me more firepower than my current wand. :confused3
